New completion date scheduled for Gibbs Road over I-635 bridge replacement project

The Gibbs Road over I-635 Bridge Replacement Project completion date has been rescheduled with Gibbs Road reopening to traffic in late September 2014, and the overall project work scheduled for completion in mid-October 2014, weather permitting.

According to the Kansas Department of Transportation, the start of construction on the project was delayed by several weeks, due to issues related to the advance work on the clearing of utilities. Despite the hard work of the contractor and KDOT construction staff, the bridge project simply isn’t going to make the originally scheduled completion date, according to KDOT.

During these last couple of weeks, the girders for the new bridge structure were set in place during overnight closures on I-635. Next steps include the installation of the formwork used to support the bridge deck, followed by the concrete pour for the new bridge deck.

Updated daily traffic information for this project and for the entire Kansas City metro area can be viewed online any time at: www.ksdot.org/kcmetro/laneclose.asp.

The Kansas Department of Transportation urges all motorists to be alert, obey the warning signs, and slow down when approaching and driving through the project work zone.
